        Instructor: Ali Reza Jalili | Facilitator: Amanda Marsh

This course focuses on the relationship between ethics and economics. Commonly, economics is thought to be a value-free subject squarely based on rational calculations. In this course, we will explore and challenge that idea. I argue that all economic assumptions, models, and recommendations, consciously or subconsciously, are based on some ethical framework.  Understanding this point enables us to be more careful about our economic policies, ranging from fair wages to welfare and environmental policies.
